Print quality is of paramount importance in both the digital industry and the print-on-demand (POD) book publishing industry. Several factors, such as, media properties, toner attributes and fusing technology, play a critical role in the quality of print output. In terms of media properties, surface characteristics (smoothness, surface treatments and energy), electrical properties and dimensional stability have a direct bearing on print quality. Toner parameters affecting print quality include particle size, toner charge to mass ratio, powder flow and melt rheology. The type of fusing (contact v/s non-contact) and fuser roll materials can also influence print quality.

An overview of each of these factors and their influence on digital printing (both monochrome and color) will be discussed. Further, this paper is an investigation of the correlation between media and EP materials in a typical digital printing industry, new test methodology and print output quality.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
